I am sorry to hear about your problem. My name is ***** *****, I am a Tech Expert with over 20 years of experience and look forward to helping you today.

That is a scam message. The goal is to have you call them so that they can scam you out of a large amount of money for some reason. The best thing to do is to turn the computer off and on. 99% of the time, that will fix the issue with those types of scams. The message you were given was from a website.

In short, turn the computer off & on, as well as do not call that number.
